is our rabbit, Shabu, also known as Naughty Bunny (on a daily
basis) whenever we bust him doing something that he shouldn't be. He has
almost complete run of the house and you can be sure, if you are doing
something he'll be there to inspect it, if he hasn't found something
really good to chew first.
Shabu absolutely loves his vegies, and banana is his favorite fruit. His
number one resting place is under our bed. If it's a hot day, he'll
stretch out on some cool tiles. No matter where he is or what he is
doing, Shabu is always ready for a scratch on the head. He often thumps
his foot and grunts when someone has stopped patting him too soon.
Unfortunately Shabu loves to chew on cords. He has chewed through 2
phone cords and half chewed a mouse cord. We have also discovered bite
marks in various cords around the house, with the plastic casing
carefully chewed around the electric wires. As a result, we have taken
precautions to prevent anymore "chewing incidents", and much to his
resentment, Shabu is banned from the computer room. Other things get
chewed, too. We often find chunks missing from magazines and anything
that is cardboard.
Of course, Shabu absolutely loves the great outdoors. He sometimes sits
at the back door and scratches it like a dog, waiting to get out. Once
outside he loves to run through the grass and hide in the bushes. It's
great fun watching him hop, skip and jump around. He spooks himself
sometimes and tears off to a safe place, hiding from an imaginary
All in all, I have to say that ever since we got Shabu, he has made our
day, every day. We love Shabu so much.
